That's another reason everyone working should pay the school taxes. Not just the property owners.
The ones on welfare should be make to earn the handout monies they are given. No work no handouts. Get the WPA back in force.
While were at it, lets attack the Amish to.
1. They don't fight for their country
2. They pay NO real estate tax on their homes because they hold Church service in each others home and all are classified as a non profit organization. Their homes are their Church. Is that a kick in the balls or what?
They pay no Stste workmans comp to their employees and can undercut a buisness owner who does. That will be changed to.
I also went through the attic and saw the pay stubs of my Dad after he passed away.
You would be surprised at "my" pay stubs from 40 plus years ago. I remember when new Corvetts were $2500.00 and new Houses then sold for $16,995.00 and that same house today sells for $135,000.00
Anyway, I don't want to ever give into the demands of a minority. The majority rules and speaks and those are the ones that I will try my best to keep happy.
DC, I drive on a road every single day back and forth to work and every single day I see Pilgrims with thier wagons and ****-spreaders, and farm equipment in general. Each one has nice STEEL wheels so they dig big grooves in the highway (that was just paved 2 years ago.) Now, if I go drive a Dozer or Trackhoe down the road and dig it up, I get to pay for the new pavement to replace the road because I destroyed it. Rubber is a "Natural" substance unlike Steel but do they have any of it on thier equipment? No. Down in Lancaster it's the law for them to have rubber tires if they drive on the highway. Here, they drive on the road to avoid thier fields! It's easier to pull the wagons! have you ever seen what happens to a road when a wagon load of hay goes down the road on steel wheels?
Another thing that gets me is the "Prevailing Wage". Just excatly where does that wage prevail. I just love it when someone who works for a certain dollar amount, and now works on a government funded job where money is no object and receives 3 times as much pay for the same job because the taxpayers are footing the bill. No Competetition. The root of all evil.
Next, think about this truck owners...
Your Ford, Dodge and Chevy Trucks are NOT made here in the US. Toyota trucks ARE. Honda Cars ARE. Makes you wonder doesn't it.
Vietnam: Having as Steve said, "not been there" as I was born about the time it was underway, I will defer from that subject. My Cousin however, (Former Cousin) also was subjected to Agent Orange and died in August, the next to last person from his company. 1 Remains. Amazing, the government had no handouts ready there either. All these handouts are misdirected grossly. Like a few above, He never asked for one. Officially, he didn't die of exposure to AO either.
If you have something that you disassemble and reassemble enough times, sooner or later, you'll have two!
"Don't tell me that as President you plan to never trust the advice of others. If you are truly all-knowing, then President is to low of an office for you."
I do trust the "GOOD" advice of others "if" they have had some experiance in what they are talking about.
You don't, when it comes to diesels. You have stated that you have never owned one. That speaks volumns in itself.
That's on the same level as someone who "never, used or owned" a longrange rifle and having him tell you something or everything about it? If a person never owned or operated a longrange rifle, he don't know sqaut about that asopect of shooting either.
I will "always" listen to those who have experiance with anything that will help preserve this great nation.
That again is why I want to do away with Jap engines in domestic trucks.
Not a good situation (Jap engine Imports)especially if we want to keep as many jobs and funds "IN" America.
Since you don't have a diesel anyway, that shouldn't really bother you at all.
Keep driving the gas trucks but don't complain when the gas prices keep going up and the Diesel fuel goes down because of reduced cost of the refinery production of fuel oils.
Wyo (Ric) has had experiance with Diesels and he pulls a lot of weight in my cabinet.
Every leader listens to his cabinet members for the best information he can possibly have. I am no exception.
I am assembling mine from the experiance they have gathered on the foreign and domestic fronts in war time and piece time.
On another important note;
I'm certainly glad you have "not" had gay sex either.
If you had, you would be one I would be sending back to Cuba in the boats along with the "known" fags and "spiked hair" odd balls.
Since you mentioned you have never induldged, your safe.
Anyway, keep driving the Chevy (gas) trucks as they are not on the list to stop manufacturing or production of.
"Only" the Jap Diesel engines that go in them are on the "Non-Import" list at present. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
We are staying with Detroit, International and Cummins diesels in all American trucks, even though Ford, Chevy and Dodge are made/assembled in Canada and Mexico.
Got to get going, have a load of wood to pull back to PA today with my "diesel."
Always nice talking with a fellow tax payer in this great Country.
PS--Don't be doing or saying anything behind my back while I'm on the road. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
YEE HAA ---Dodge Ram Diesel is going down the highway. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
One real nice thing about a Duranax (Jap) diesel is, they can run on "rice" instead of Diesel fuel. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] I guess that's a plus?
I formulated my opinion on the advice of others. And my mechanic can beat up your mechanic [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
While I do not own one, I grew up around diesels of many different types. Trucks, Semi's, Tractors, heavy equipment an such. I was not expecting you to take my side. Just respect the opinions of others. Sometimes too much to ask in any sort of leader I guess.
Would your opinion be different if you did not own a Dodge diesel? Is it possible a Jap offering is better than the American ones, but because it is Japanese it is not even considered?
Have fun pulling your wood today. I am gonna take a long lunch and go shooting. Applying expert knowledge I got from others.
The way the Japanese screwed over us on the import and export balance many years ago, I will "NEVER" be for a Jap product coming into this country from abroad. I haven't even got to Pearl Harbor yet and that's another sore spot.
True, they are building a decent product here in the States and giving jobs to our work force. This only balances out the jobs we are giving to those workers in Canada and Mexico, with our domestic trucks, Thanks to Bill Clinton.
I'm glad you are going out shooting to "Learn" from the advice of others you have aquired from the shooting forums.
This also applies to diesels. You and I can both learn from the experiance of Diesel owners across this great nation.
One advantage I have is, I have owned some of them and drive them dailey.
I'm also glad you have been around semis and other heavy haulers which I have been also.
The best over the road heavy diesels has always been the Cat, Cummins & Mercedes and I think you have heard that.
If I didn't own a Dodge Diesel or "ANY" diesel for that matter, I would still be against a Jap diesel being imported into this Country and many of my Cabinet feel the same way.
We are trying to rid this country of rice burner imports.
Lets get back to good old US pruducts.
Hope your shooting goes well. As soon as the leaves are off the mountains in PA, I will be doing the same thing in preperation of Buck season.
Sorry to say it looks like the Colorado trip will not be happening this year (after 13 years straight) because of my wifes foot. She wants me to go on out by myself and hunt with my friends there, but I wouldn't do that without her.
PS--You must have an old Chevy if it was made in Indiana?
